The problem is that you define the internal variable
DIST_COMMON.  Automake will never overwrite a variable you
defined, assuming you know better than it does.

  * To fix you problem, simply remove this variable definition
    and let automake do its job: the two files it lists are files
    that automake would automatically distribute anyway.

  * To distribute extra files, do use the documented variable

  * Running `automake -Wall' will warn you about user definitition
    that overwrite automake variable (among other things).
